Eastern European tour? by Nick.Travels on 19 August 2011 10:56am
Hello, I'm Nick aged 17, Next summer will be my last summer before university & I'd love to tour around eastern europe but I don't want to go on an organized bus tour, I'd rather catch trains etc, any advice/ideas on how I'd go about doing this?

Thanks, Nick

Hi Nick and welcome to the site. Michael Palin's "New Europe" might give you some ideas. Click on the link above left under 'Journeys' and read his book.

Happy and safe travels to you.

Hi Nick. Glad to see you here . I've not done this kind of traveling in Eastern Europe. I bet other Painites have though.

Hi Nick!

When you have more specific plans about what you want to experience and the dates involved, ask here again and I'm sure that there will be people who can guide you to really good stuff.

Have an incredibly great time! (Oh, to be 17 again!)
